4:32 pm
cnbc's courtney reagan joins us live with some analysis. courtney? >> reporter: it was quite a day on wall street, you said it, wild is a really good way to classify it. we began the day sharply lower, which wasn't an entire surprise. we take our cues often from other world markets and they took their cues from us. what i mean by that is that the dow jones industrial average closed down 531 points on friday and that led to asian stocks to begin to selloff and that led to european stocks to begin to selloff. so this morning, we sort of knew what we were in for but we really couldn't have predicted the magnitude and volatility we saw throughout the day. the dow was down at one point as much as 1,089 points, rallied all the way back to be down just about 1%, but ultimately, in the final minutes of trade, did close down 588 points. that's 3.6%. it sounds like it was a lot and was the worst three-day point loss we have had, however, on a
4:33 pm
percentage basis, this was far from the worst day. i want to just remind investors to keep their emotions in check. it's a very good time, perhaps to check in with your financial adviser, make sure that your risk profile is appropriate. if today felt uncomfortable for you, it might be a good reason to understand why. keep your eye on your end goals, whether these retirement or saving for college, not in individual day's moves. the reason for today's move was a lot about fear. we were very worried about what could happen and what is happening in china, bit is number two economy in the world and it appears that it is slowing. we just don't know how much because there's some concern that chinese officials respect perhaps being as transparent as they could be about what's going on there. and if that economy begins to slow it has ripple affects throughout the world. that as well as the tumbling price of oil which, again, is falling because we have too much supply and not enough demand. so while it may help consumers
4:34 pm
at the pump, the bottom reason for that oil price drop doesn't feel so good. last but not least what will the fed do with were interest rates? there's been talk that perhaps that they could begin to hike those rates in september but after today's move, some traders are doubting that they will make that move. back to you, chris. all right. so, it sounds like normal folks who got a i.r.a. or 401(k), don't overreact to what's happened today. thanks so much, courtney. and a state official in oklahoma is dead. investigators say he was stabbed to death by his son. this was at a restaurant in oklahoma city. the son of labor commissioner mark costello set up a meeting with his parents at that restaurant and witnesses say he allegedly stabbed his father, then continued stabbing him as his father was -- ran outside of the restaurant to get away from him. witnesses ended up subdoug the son and held him until police arrived. so far, no motive has been mentioned. we heard some more emotional testimony today at the sentencing hearing for james hughes -- james holmes, i should same survivors of the colorado

4:36 pm
after the hackers who exposed the e-mail addresses of people who are using the extramarital affair website. hundreds of those addresses are now linked to -- are actually linked to law enforcement and national security employees here in the united states. police also warped services offering to remove customer profiles from the ashley madison database are scams. the company behind ashley madison is offering a nearly $380,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the hackers. we told but a mom who claimed she found glass shards in hug guess babies wipes. that was last week. today, huggies says the shards are just fibers. this is the mother showing off what appeared to be shimmering shards in those wipes. hug guess looked into it and says their investigators found sometimes in the manufacturing process, the fibers create shiny particles. hug guess says it doesn't use any glass to make the baby wipes but will do more tests to make
